    A deposit bond is a written guarantee that substitutes the 10% cash deposit traditionally required to purchase a property (Note you can usually get away with only paying a $1000 deposit if negotiated when signing the contract however; this may secure the property if there is a lot of competition). Applicants can apply for a deposit bond and if you are approved you will be required to pay a premium (fee) for the bond. The deposit bond premium is a one off fee that replaces your 10% deposit and secures the property until settlement. If you do pull out and do not pay the deposit, it will be paid by the bond provider. They will then seek reimbursement + costs etc from the debtor

    Where as a bank guarantee, is issued by a lending institution ensuring that the liabilities of a debtor will be met. If the debtor fails to settle a debt, the lender will cover it. A bank guarantee enables the customer (debtor) to acquire goods, secure a property, secure a lease, buy equipment, or draw down loans. Again the lender will seek compensation from the debtor

    Thanks again Wayne,

    I have 200K in equity and i am interested in buying of the plan with settlement mid 2010. The purchase price is 695K. I think a deposit bond is the way to go as I don’t want to tie up my equity.

    Can anyone help me achieve this!?

    Cheers,

    Sasha.
